Last year, the City paid $8,820 to maintain the site, which is substantially down from the 2010/2011 season cost of $77,873.60. In addition to the lesser amount of snow received last winter, the City also switched from using D6 Cats to pile the snow to a new Model 8300 snow blower.

With the early snow Fort St. John has received this year, it's expected the City will spend approximately $10,080 to maintain this site in 2012/2013.

In order to further recover costs, starting in the 2013/2014 winter season, users of the snow dump will be required to display a decal on their vehicle, with city staff conducting random checks. The amount of the fee will be determined after documenting both the 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 costs.
